How do you play this double
Default is support X if you are playing support. With my Precision partners, it is a non issue that it is support. With 2/1 partners, I found it was so difficult to explain to them why X should not be support here, I gave up. With non regular partners ...
Adrenaline Hangover
Just recently I screwed up on a similar hand. I was in 6N after opening 2, and my LHO preempted 3. I should have checked the first before touching , and if I did, the J would have dropped singleton, and I would have an easy squeeze ...
(1!D) precision can be 2+, 3!D and 3NT overcall

where did east-west go wrong on this hand
The lead may be far from obvious, but the switch after S takes a is not. W has no entry to dummy without losing a or playing herself.
Double of an "either/or bid"
Cornelia, I disagree. The weakness of those unspecified suit(s) is the advancer does not know what the suit(s) is/are. You do not want to let them have a free go at finding it out. Here, if you don't have a way to right away know if ...
